I love the new holiday mini and have used 8 new products from it just on this card!  Hope you enjoy this card!

It's that time of year again!!!

Hi ladies,  so sorry I have been away so long.  Summer is a very busy time of year here, like for many of you.  We had a pretty good one except for a few mishaps... like almost getting my head squished in our trailer... yep that is right, as we were putting it up the cable broke and the tent trailer closed very quickly!!!!  I was very lucky I was not hurt.  Anyways, I have been playing a bit with the new and great stuff in the mini.  Once I get the kiddies off to school I will post one of my favorite cards I've made.
So besides being the time of year for the kiddies to be off to school.... the HOLIDAY MINI starts today!!!!  I love fall and Christmas time and once again Stampin' Up! has outdone themselves.  If you have not recived your mini yet in the mail you can click on the catalogue picture here to see all the great new products.  Enjoy!!!
